Red, White & Blue Memorial Day Flowers

Memorial Day Flowers

After the Civil War ended, families who were mourning the loss of husbands and sons looked for a way to honor them, and established the observance of Decoration Day. It was recognized unofficially for one hundred years, until in 1971 it was given a new name and made an official U.S. holiday. Memorial Day allows us to stop and reflect on the sacrifices made by those who gave their lives in the commission of their military service, from the 1860’s right up to modern day. Whether looking to decorate a grave site or send a meaningful bouquet to a loved one, the floral designers at Crouch Florist are honored to assist.

Mother’s Day Facts and Trivia

Mother's Day factsAlthough many people may believe that Mother’s Day is the inspiration of the greeting card companies, but this holiday does have a rich legacy.

Anna Jarvis wanted to celebrate and remember her mother’s life of service and commitment to empowering women, especially mothers.  This dedicated daughter worked diligently to see Mother’s Day established in 1914. Her vision of the holiday, however, included church attendance, prayer, and quiet family time. As the holiday was picked up on by retailers, Ms. Jarvis regretted the holiday and spent the later years of her life trying to have Mother’s Day abolished. OF course, it had already caught on – and we love showering our Moms with gifts! In honor of Mothers’ Day, here are some other fun facts from Crouch Florist: Continue reading
